Dr. Hwamee Oh is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Human Behavior. Dr. Oh received her PhD in Biopsychology (with concentration in Human Cognitive Neuroscience) at the State University of New York at Stony Brook. In her postdoctoral training in Dr. William Jagust’s laboratory in Helen Wills Neuroscience Institute at UC-Berkeley, she studied cognitive, structural, and functional alterations in preclinical older adults with β-amyloid deposition, a pathological hallmark of Alzheimer’s disease, using amyoid PET, structural MRI, fMRI and neuropsychological tests. Prior to Brown, Dr. Oh was an Assistant Professor at Columbia University and SUNY-Stony Brook. At Brown, Dr. Oh extends her research on cognitive and neural changes due to normal aging and Alzheimer's disease pathology and individual difference factors contributing to the brain aging and cognition relationship using multimodality neuroimaging methods including PET and structural and functional MRI.
